Is there anything coconut oil can’t do? Health benefits range from hair and skin care to helping with digestion and regulating metabolism. It’s almost like a magical elixir in the alternative health world.
This week I used coconut oil to create a great lip scrub to help with my dry, chapped lips. It’s been pretty cold here lately and the more we turn up the heat, the more the moisture is being sucked out of my skin and lips.
I needed something to help with this uncomfortable feeling, so I tried an easy lip scrub from this Pinterest post, http://homemadeforelle.com/homemade-lip-scrub/. Luckily, it was made up of three ingredients I already had at home, coconut oil, sugar, and honey.
I just mixed the ingredients together and used it to scrub my lips for a minute or two. Then I washed it off with some water and my lips were super soft. Some of the coconut oil actually stayed on, which helped keep my lips moisturized. A little goes a long way, and this recipe made quite a bit, so I put the remaining amount in a small container and stuck it in the fridge. The post said you could refrigerate it for up to a month. I can’t wait to use it again!
